I was lucky enough to be gifted some ultra swoon-worthy products from RY.com.au for the purpose of reviewing. After lusting after OFRA products for so long, I finally have some in my hot little hands. See below for my thoughts and a NON-affiliate code (meaning I make no money of it) to save you some coin.
Firstly, the sight of this little beauty alone give my those makeup tingly feelings… everyone get those right?! Right?! From the stunning pale gold shade, to the beautiful detail in the press, this little baby really is set to impress. With glowing reviews (pun intended), I was super interested in getting this all up in my grill and making me glow like a disco ball. From first swatch, it is easy to see the amount of gorgeous pigmentation. I did however note that it is a little on the powdery side, which is not really concerning but I just thought I would mention. The highlight does swatch beautifully and feels super silky on the skin, but I have found that highly pigmented highlighters don’t always translate well on the skin. But I should not have been worried because, boy does this deliver. The formula is super buttery, pigmented and glides on the face seamlessly. It is easily diffused for a lovely not-too OTT glow, or you can pack it on for that Instagram glam look.
This is another simply stunning product. Similar to the highlight, the formula is SUPER pigmented and buttery, plus it is just oh-so dreamy to look at. My only ‘sort of’ negative comment on this product would be its name. There is no way that these shimmers could be considered anything other than a highlight, especially not a blush or bronzer. As you can see from first glance into the pan, the stripes, although stunning shades, are not what you could call a blush. Varying from an icy white, pink and peach to a deep golden bronze, all of these shades are super glowy and shimmery and would be best suited to highlighting your face, or even used as a shimmery eyeshadow. That being said, it is a gorgeous product that allows you to create your own personalised hue from the various colours and it is certainly buildable, which gives you control over how little or how much glow you want on your precious little mug.
I am a huge lover of liquid lipstick, but needless to say I am highly picky in regards to the formula. I need something light, long-wearing and mostly non-drying. I have a few favourite formulas, but I mostly find liquid lipstick to either ball up on the lips, emphasise dry skin or create dry skin. I have been really surprised and impressed with the OFRA formula. While I have only tried one shade and cannot speak for the whole range, the product that I do have just glides on to the lips like a dream. The staying power is fabulous and my lips stay soft and plump all day. Big win! I will definitely be investing in some more of these bad boys.
I also received some other goodies…
I have spoken about this numerous times on my blog . I swear by this at home hair treatment. It makes my blonde hair super healthy and soft, plus it reduces the amount of damage bleaching can cause. I chopped my hair into a lob about a year ago and I’ve since grown it out, it is now nipple length – that is a HUGE amount of growth in 12 months. During this time I have religiously used Olaplex and never has my hair grown so fast, nor has it been so damn healthy or thick. Even my hairdresser noticed. I have had quite a few questions in regards to where this can be purchased from, I used to recommend specific hair salons, but now RY.com.au are offering it online. Hallelujah.
Yes! so much yes. This gorgeously silky serum woks wonders on my hair. It is super moisturising but doesn’t make my hair look limp or heavy; quite the opposite really. I have been using this almost daily and have noticed a huge difference in my dry ends. My hair is left smooth, shiny and as swooshy as a Herbal Essence ad.
While I have only used this twice, the Ocean Mist Spray really gives my hair a little bit of oompf. I applied it to damp hair and blow-dried for a voluminous look, that really enhanced my natural wave and gave my usually fine, flat hair a bit of body. This is definitely something I will continue to add into my hair styling routine.
I would also like to mention that RY.com.au recently launched their very own MUA Store specially curated by makeup superstar Jasmine Hand. The idea behind this concept is to provide professional brands and products to us every day beauty and makeup enthusiasts. Offering a fabulous range of brands, the RY MUA Store, in combination with the RY.com.au site is fabulous platform to discover new, and previously difficult to find brands based right here in Australia.
